The sad, gross tale of Terry Richardson continued over the weekend, with yet another allegation of inappropriate sexual behavior from the photographer surfacing. Model Emma Appleton shared what she claimed to be a Facebook message from Richardson offering an appearance in Vogue in exchange for sex. She soon deleted the post, but it can be seen here.
A spokesperson for Richardson told Buzzfeed it was a fake, and Appleton later deleted her Twitter account.
We still don’t know whether or not the message was the genuine article, but apparently enough of these sorts of stories have emerged for Vogue to release a statement regarding Richardson. “The last assignment Terry Richardson had for US Vogue appeared in the July 2010 issue and we have no plans to work with him in the future,” the magazine’s PR rep Hildy Kuryk, said on Sunday to The Wrap.
US Vogue taking a stand is one thing, Condé Nast taking a stand is another, in which case it would apply to all Vogues + amongst others: Vanity Fair, Allure, Glamour, GQ, Lucky, Self, Teen Vogue, Vanity Fair, & W.
